obesity. 27% of young americans are too fat to join the military. and in california, the numbers are worse, 42% overweight or obese. years ago that wasn't such a big deal. >> we ran them through a fat farm to lose the weight. those don't exist anymore. you either qualify to come in or you do not. we do not rehabilitate people anymore. >> the military provides waivers for things like criminal history but it is getting tougher to get those waivers approved. just ask sam schmidt. >> they are not accepting run of the mill. >> she's been rejected, thanks to these tattoos on her hands and side of the neck. >> it was like, what are my fans chances of being able to make it in and he's like 50/50. >> the army has had it slash the recruitment goals for the last four years in a row. from 2009 to 2012, it lowered
the number by 26,000. the army doesn't give the reason why but a lot is advanced technology. >> communications, commander control systems that they use is are all high tech. you can't just hand somebody a gun and say, stay away. >> the military will give them the opportunity to grow up, it will give them discipline, mental discipline, physical discipline, and it will provide uncle sam as that rich uncle who might support you through college. and they can't get that opportunity now because they can't get in the military in the first place. >> stephanie trong, nbc "today in the bay". terrorist plots that have been stopped over the last few years.

now say dozens of potential terrorist attacks were prevented because of the information gained through the use of the government's controversial data gathering program. they say one was a plot targeting new york city four years ago. dan has the details. >> reporter: in september 2009, nazi was arrested for plotting to bomb subways. in january, an arrest of an alleged co-conspirator, both serving life sentences which proves that the surveillance programs work. according to the information released on saturday by the senate intelligence committee, this plot is one of dozens officials say have been thwarted by the programs. programs which have recently found themselves in the hot seat, after the leaking of classified information by edward snowden, the contractor at the
center of the controversy. fewer than 300 phone numbers were investigated last year in a database of u.s. phone records collected by the nsa. records can only be connected to terrorism. as the intelligence community tries to push back in their monitoring of internet usage, google and facebook are pushing as well, asking the government to allow more transparency for their users without compromising security. vice president joe biden is waking up in washington, d.c., after a quick trip to the bay area. he was fundraising but managed to make a surprise stop at a popular diner in sunnyvale. >> i love you. >> what's your name? >> carrie vonn. i've been voting since i was 20 years old. >> two times then, i got it. >> thanks so much for looking out for us little people.

republicans wonder if they can afford it in the long run. the federal government will pick up the full cost for the first three years and then the state will be responsible for a portion of it. analysts say that could total up to $1.3 billion a year. by the end of this month and perhaps as early as tomorrow, the united states supreme court will decide the merits of affirmative action. joining us with the twist in this long-running conversation. i remember it was going on when i was still going to college. >> periodically this comes up, of course. with affirmative action, they consider race, gender, along with basic qualifications that anyone would need to have. that was created in the 1960s to help minority groups. the concept, kris, has been
controversial from the very beginning. some argue that it favors minorities over whites and it's unfair to it whos who may have had nothing to do with discrimination whatsoever. others say without it minorities would never have the opportunity to succeed. so there is the clash, if you will. >> right. so there is a current case that brings it back. and that's what the supreme court may decide? >> yep. every once in a while, as we said, folks decide to sue to possibly overturn the concept and it has changed over the years, by the way. they want to change it as unconstitutional. now, that's the focus of the present case. that's amy fisher versus the university of texas. abigail, excuse me, where she claims that she, a white woman, was denied admission because the school allowed less qualified black and latino students over her. >> this is the university of texas, my ala mater, by the way,
it was nice to see that video. how does that case impact california? >> the very concept of affirmative action, particularly since the court has limited its use going back, by the way, to 1978, that conservatives -- the concept is just -- liberals say discrimination persists to this very day and public institutions are hardly reflective of the nations demography. this case may be decided by the 5-4 vote with, of course, justice anthony kennedy being the swing vote again. >> so students who may be applying to universities here in california, i mean, affirm ativ action was outlawed, right? >> that's why this case hardly
affects california. in 2011, though, more recently, governor jerry brown vetoed a bill that would have reinstated affirmative action. still, public institutions here employ a variety of tactics, if you will, to increase the university admissions, for example, along the freshman class at uc during the 2011-2012, 4% were black, 15% latino, 48% were asian. all of this from outreach, okay? if the court eliminates affirmative action, look for opponents to press the university to cease minority outreach programs. if they sustain it on some kind of level, expect california institutions to continue their university diversity outreach efforts. but either way, california will be impacted from what comes out. and, yeah, it can be as early as
24 hours from now and a lot of people are going to be watching to see what that means for their future and the future of their kids. >> all right. thank you very much, larry, for clearing that up. we'll monitor that as the u.s. supreme court is working but we're also watching for the supreme court's decision regarding california's ban of same-sex marriage. that could come by the end of the month. if prop 8 is overturned a flood of same-sex couples are expected to descend on the court looking for marriage licenses. the county is preparing just in case. >> hyphenated combinations. >> inside san francisco's city hall, an unusual school is in session. >> what's the matter with that? >> a group of 30 stud cents learning the finer points of marriage. >> what we mean by a public marriage license, it means a ceremony may take place anywhere in california. >> this group will make up the
army of volunteers san francisco will dispatch in the event the u.s. supreme court strikes down california's prop 8, clearing the way for same-sex marriages. >> if they allow these marriages to continue, we want to be able to marry people immediately. >> the city administrator hopes to deputize clerks within the next week. the city has a bit of experience to go by following brief periods when same-sex marriages were allowed in 2004 and 2008. >> it could be as much as 200 people who come down to the city hall. if there's more, we're ready for them. if there's less, we're fine. >> the work isn't all glamorous. while some trainees were officiate marriages, some will enter information into the computer or work as greeters. if the court clears the way for the marriages, city hall will extend hours to meet the initial
crush of newlyweds. for many volunteers, it will be a familiar sight. >> it's an amazing part of history. i was here for the first round of gay marriage and city hall was just electric at that time. >> san francisco city attorney believes there will be a 30-day waiting period from the time the decision is released to when the weddings begin. so as the wait continues -- >> do you solemnly swear or affirm -- >> -- there's still much to do. joe rosato jr. this is bay area news. san francisco marathon runners have been hard at work. we'll be right back. nice in san francisco and nice look at foster city. a look at your father's day forecast coming up when we come right back.
